Ausable River Association

 

Project Size: $435,000

Grant Amounts: $45,000 (2015-2017), $20,000 (2018)

Strategic Value:  These grants were to support the monitoring and protection of clean water in the Ausable River.  AsRA’s work ties in closely with the work being done on salt reduction by the Adirondack Watershed Institute at Paul Smith’s College and AdkAction.org, both Cloudsplitter Foundation grantees. 

Grant Analysis:  The first three grants have been a success. We now better understand the river chemistry, its fish populations, the impact of climate change, and the impact of road salt on Mirror Lake.
